So, I get up this morning only to notice that my passenger side mirror cap is sitting next to my car as though someone placed it there. I walk around and notice that the entire mirror on the passenger side is gone, not broken, but gone. Somehow, someone managed to hit my side view mirror without hitting anthing else and completely knocking out the mirror, motor and all. It didn't damage the painted mirror cap at all. Of course, now I need to replace the whole mirror. Does anyone know where I could find a good price on the mirror?<p><IMG SRC="http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a185/mhjeep/IMG_0102.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a185/mhjeep/IMG_0103.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a185/mhjeep/IMG_0105.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Re: someone just knocked out my side view mirror! (MWH)

Don't know if they come prepainted or not.<br>If they don't, try <A HREF="http://www.erievovo.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.erievovo.com</A> for a used one out of any 04-06 wreck.<br>If they do (come painted) unless you can find the same color used, it would be a waste and time consuming not to go with a new one from the dealer

It DOES sound like someone stole it, although why would someone only steal one? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>But this sounds like a PERFECT excuse to call John from Boston Volvo Village and upgrade to the remote folding mirrors! <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>(Sorry to hear about this though, I feel bad about the grin).

I've got my (non-power) mirrors leftover from my upgrade if you're interested. Sent you an IM.

Re: someone just knocked out my side view mirror! (partridge)

I am going to post pictures. You are right about it looking like someone stealing it. I can only imagine why someone would steal only the passenger side mirror of a 2005 s60 R. I can't see a volvo owner being that devious, and if someone were stealing it to sell the parts, why didn't they take the driver's side too?

Looks to me like the mirror and the servo section were yanked out as one. Probably just vandalism, as if they wanted the mirror they could have pulled it cleanly without getting the motor.<p>You might be able to get the servo assembly and the mirror cheaply. as it looks like the plug for the servos is still intact and just hanging there. (the white thing). The two leads for the defroster are intact, as are the sensors for tilt position.<p>I'd give a try at just replacing the motor and mirror first, because that would save you having to remove the interior door panel to get at the wiring harness, which you'd have to do if you were going to replace the whole assembly.
